In memory of
Jared High


Bullying  Depression  Bullycide
Jared Benjamin High
Born Sept. 23, 1985 - Died Sept. 29, 1998
By Suicide/Bullycide


.  It is believed that depression causes most teenage suicides, but this creates a new question - what causes the depression?  A person just doesn't wake up one morning with depression.  Psychologists believe that some people have a genetic tendency towards depression, some people develop depression because of environmental triggers, and some people can have both genetic and environmental triggers,  (See "Teen Depression and it's Causes").  Jared developed depression from bullying at school as well as an assault by a bully in school
The new term being used to describe this type of teen Suicide is, "bullycide," a suicide caused from the effects of bullying.
As Jared's mom, I welcome you to my grief project, JaredStory.com.  You will find an abundance of stories about Jared, research concerning bullying, depression, suicide prevention and suicide, as well as some motherly advise to help those thinking about suicide or those who have been through bullying, depression and/or a loss by suicide.  There are pages with serious subject matter, as well as pages filled with laughter. 
If you are studying bullying, (teen) depression and suicide, be sure to check out the advertisers on site.  By supporting the advertisers on JaredStory.com, you keep this website active on the web. 
If you have had thoughts of suicide, be sure and read, "Teenage Suicide - Been There, Done That" and if you are feeling down, be sure and read my favorite story about Jared, "The Skittles War," and make, (and eat) Jared's favorite cake, "Dirt Cake," which I call, "Worm Cake."  It will take you back to the happy moments in your own life and you will forget your troubles for a time.
Jared's loss filled our lives with grief, but the healing has come.  Our family has found hope in understanding Jared's purpose in life and in The Meaning of Life.   (Be sure and read "Commit Suicide, and go where?")  We were left behind with only memories of Jared, some good, some bad, but our healing journey goes on and will for the rest of our lives.
Lots of Love from Brenda  (Jared's mom)

This recording is from an interview with Pasco School District investigators concerning the assault.  This is a recording of a recording and it isn't real clear, but worth the download effort.  Jared had a real mellow voice.     Note: If you have a slow load wav, wait for it to load entirely and then play from the start.   About 5 minutes long
